Manchester: Learning, Environment

UNITE’s Union Learning Reps continue to be active in promoting learning and development for Manchester staff, for work, personal development and for fun. The latest edition of our learning newsletter has been published on the “Invest In Yourself” CafeVIK community.
On Learning At Work Day earlier this year, our Environmental reps ran a “word search” competition to highlight which items could be recycled at the Manchester Campus.
Congratulations to the winners:
* Geoff Wilson – First Prize
* Bryan Cockburn – Second Prize
* Louise Perry – Third Prize
* Dave Jones – Fourth Prize
* John Whitehead – Fifth Prize
There were 21 Words to find in the word search grid:
NONCONFIDENTIALPAPER, THINCARD, ALUMINIUMCAN, PLASTICCUP, PLASTICBOTTLE, NEWSPAPER, MAGAZINE, ENVELOPE, WAXPAPERCUPS, POSTITNOTE, BOOK, PEN, TISSUEPAPER, COMPACTDISK, INKCARTRIDGE, BATTERY, DVD, FOODWASTE, CRISPPACKET, TEABAG, SWEETWRAPPER
The competition was a fun way to raise awareness of things that can be recycled on site. Items can be recycled (or not – in the case of General Waste) as follows:

Recycling Bin (13)

Recycle Mail Drop (4)

General Waste (4)

Non Confidential Paper, Thin Card, Tissue Paper, Pen, Book, Envelope, Aluminium Can, Post it note, Plastic Cup, Wax Paper Cups, Plastic Bottle, Magazine, Newspaper

Compact Disk, Ink Cartridge, Battery, DVD

Food Waste, Crisp Packet, Tea Bag, Sweet Wrapper


Thank you to the Site Facilities team who confirmed the answers as being correct for the Manchester campus and to the Learning Reps and to Lissa from Site facilities who provided prizes.
Your UNITE Environmental Reps are Helen Clayson, Darren Cox, Steve Gibson and Jay Lieberman.
